Book Pick: 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'
I love the book "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" by my friend Jonathan Safran Foer. Jonathan is one of my favorite authors, and this book is absolutely incredible.
It's hard to tell what this book is about from the title, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. At first I thought that's how I should read it, but Portia told me it's not.
The book is about a brilliant 9 year old boy named Oskar who's father died on September 11th. Oskar is an inventor with an incredible imagination who tries to find the lock that belongs to a mysterious key he finds in his father's closet.
It's a beautiful book that's both hilarious and incredibly moving. I hope you'll read it. You can buy it on Amazon.com right here.
